MARRIED.--On the 1st, by Elder Wm. M. Burton, Mr. Thomas B. Gibson, of this county, and Miss Lucy Redd, of Cooper.
Being kindly and properly remembered, we start the happy couple along with thanks and well-wishes.
May their days grow longer
And their love be stronger
As they sail down the river of time;
May the shadows of life's eve
Find a glorious reprieve
In the sunshine of an ever-summered clime?
